08.10.2007 – BOURBON FLAME – S/T
Started in 2001 by Janto (Hades Almighty), Erik (Deathcon, ex-Aeternus), Ice Dale (Enslaved, I, Audrey Horne) and T. Ringstad, for their mutual love for sleazy, unpolished and raw rock'n'roll. After a couple of demos and loads of live shows throughout Norway, they finally recorded their
debut album which will be released through Dark Essence Records. Bourbon Flame is Bergen's own flagship in the dark waters of dirty eighties inspired rock n' roll. The band carries considerable musical weight and experience from their other band activities. Their self titled debut album was recorded at Conclave & Earshot studios together with producer Bjørnar E. Nilsen (Black Hole Generator, Helheim, Vulture Industries, Dead to this World, Sulphur, etc.).
19.11.2007 – DEAD TO THIS WORLD – FIRST STRIKE.
Formed in Bergen, Norway, in 2002 and was set out to be Iscariah's (Necrophagia, ex-Immortal) solo project. Dead to this World sees the return to the ancient speed/thrash/black metal underground, and remains to this day a complete study and worship of ancient darkness. After signing with Dark Essence Records, the debut album "First Strike For Spiritual Renewance" was recorded at Conclave & Earshot Studio with producer Bjørnar E. Nilsen. Drumming duties on the album are handled by ex-Gorgoroth drummer, Kvitrafn. Some lyrics have been written by Jason
Healey from Atomizer. Dead To This World delivers the most pitch black thrash metal you'll ever
